Trees fascinate us in various ways 魅了する樹木たち


Many people may feel uncomfortable when I say that we are managed by plants. However, plants provide us with so much. Not only do they produce oxygen through photosynthesis, but they also provide us with many other blessings, such as a gentle environment for animals to live in, their fruits for food, and their beautiful flowers. Why are we so altruistic? If you think about it, this environment in which we live was created by plants. Plants account for 80~90% of the earth's biomass, while other animals, including us, account for only 0.3%. We are allowed to live in the environment created by plants, and we can be considered to be under the control of plants.
